Dear Faculty & Staff:

I am very pleased and excited to announce that the U.S. Secretary of Education has named Mt. Lebanon High School a 2018 U. S. Department of Education Green Ribbon School.

Following the submission of an application this winter to the PA Department of Education, we were nominated by PDE for consideration by the US Department of Education.

Mt. Lebanon High School is being recognized for a variety of green initiatives and accomplishments. Some of the items submitted for consideration include (in addition to many others in the application):
  • Developing a comprehensive recycling and composting program
  • Establishing a locally sourced, healthy food program
  • Supporting a student-led environmental club
  • Implementing a school-energy savings program
  • Prohibition of the use of pesticides on school grounds
  • Design/construction process using a LEED focused design on school sustainability
  • Dramatic decrease in energy usage over recent 5 year period with advice/support of student led energy saving campaign
  • Graduation requirement that all students take a full year of Environmental Geocience course
  • Environmental education integrated into other areas of curricula
Our high school will be recognized in September 2018, in Washington D.C. where we will be presented an award.

Many thanks to our administrators, teachers, counselors, and support staff who have contributed to the development and implementation of our environmentally friendly programs. I would also like thank our Facilities Department for their work regarding our building design and maintenance. Special thanks to our department chairs, administrators, teachers, and facilities department staff who helped with the application process.

This is another wonderful recognition for our excellent school program. You should be very proud of this award!

Sincerely,
Brian
